Cost of Living: Conservatives blaming people for not earning enough

Responding to a UK Government minister saying people should take on more hours or get a new job to deal with the cost of living crisis, Liberal Democrat Work & Pensions Spokesperson Wendy Chamberlain MP said:

"So the Conservatives' answer to the cost-of-living emergency is that people should just earn more? This shows just how out of touch they truly are.

“Millions of families have had to make huge cutbacks and taken on extra work in order to weather the cost of living crisis. They simply cannot do any more.

"Instead of blaming people for not earning enough, Ministers should take real action to help families and pensioners now - by slashing VAT to give people £600 back in their pockets and putting a windfall tax on oil and gas companies to bring energy bills down."
